Nearing the season of giving, talented painter Andres Barrioquinto unites with the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) as the organization celebrates its 55th anniversary

After having more than 25 solo exhibitions and several group shows in the Philippines, Singapore, Japan, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Hongkong, Taiwan, and South Korea, Barrioquinto made a special collection entitled “Portraits by Andres Barrioquinto”, featuring his remarkable take on contemporary portraiture, in the hopes of helping ACC grantees.
